Getting bangs can be a thrill in the first couple of months. Then comes the awkward growing-out stage that can be quite a challenge for styling and maintenance. Before you find yourself reaching for the scissors in an attempt to chop them off again for convenience's sake, try one of these 5 easy to recreate hairstyles.

1. Pin them back.

Remember to use the curved side facing down to bend with the shape of your head. With a bobby pin, it's easy to hide the ends of your hair and add a little tousled volume, too. Scrunch a volumizing mousse into well hydrated--but not soaking wet--hair to enhance your natural texture, and pin them back into a front bouffant.

2. Braid them up.

Much like a French or Dutch braid, you can create a braid halo that will conceal your unusual-length bangs. Use a pliable texturizing taffy to create a controlled but piecey look, leaving a few longer strands out to drape behind your ears.

3. Clip them away.

For a girls night out or a fancy dinner date, this hairstyle is a super sophisticated way to hide your uneven bangs. Rock a jeweled clip on the side of your hair, accompanied by a low pony or bun to show off your elegant makeup.

4. Bun them up.

A sock bun is a timeless, chic hairstyle that doesn't require a high level of expertise. And naturally curly hair can afford the 'accidental' messy hair look, which will work just fine for bangs that can fit in with the length of the rest of your curls. For a sleeker style, use a sock bun.

5. Brush them out.

Sometimes a brush is a necessary tool for hair styling on wavy hair--as long as it is used with caution. With a large paddle brush, smooth out your bangs on freshly cleansed, well-moisturized hair and tuck the ends neatly behind your ears using a humidity resistant, firm hold hairspray to hold each strand in place.
